Has anyone took a serious look at the cost per acre to prepare and plant a food plot at the recommended planting rates? I have been tasked to take over the management for our club and I am coming up with between $125 and $200 per acre. This takes into account lime, fertilizer, fuel, and seed. The biggest variables are the amount of lime required and the seed used. As our pH comes into check the cost will go down, as will the fertilizer cost, and for perennials like some clovers this cost can be amortized over several seasons. I would be curious as to the findings of others.
